Immigrant professionals bring incredible talent and value to Canada's economy - often highly educated with global experience, multi-lingual and skilled,  they have passion to succeed. York University recognizes and respects these qualities, having become a leader in developing programs that enhance the qualifications of immigrant professionals from around the globe.  We are committed to strengthening and enhancing such programs, and now offer our Bridge to Employment Foundations Program and the IEP Certificate Bridging Programs for Internationally Educated Professionals (IEPs), which focus on the areas of Business, HR and IT.
